Subject Re: [jira] Commented: (LUCENE-721) Code coverage reports
Date Tue, 21 Nov 2006 18:31:17 GMT

: Nice.  I think we can't include EMMA jars int he repository, though, so
: you'll want to add the ability to download the Jar on the fly, just like
: Grant did it for the benchmark stuff.

that's not strictly neccessary is it? ... coverage reports could just be
an optional part of the build that only works if you've got EMMA installed
-- much the way javacc is.

I haven't really looked at EMMA or this patch, but if it involves an ant
plugin then users pretty much have to install it themselves before
executing ant right?

It should also be noted, there are *many* code coverage tools ... some may
have more compatible liscences if we do want to make them a *core* part of
the build, but i think leaving it as an optional (but easy to use) part
of the build.xml would be good enough ... in my experience, while code
coverage test reports can be helpfull for spoting big gaps in your unit
tests, they can lead to a false sense of security if you put too much
stock in them...
